I get this damned 1603 error too.
This is not the first time that I run in trouble with the installation of Paint.NET.
Perhaps and if it possible it would be good to distribute the app as an zipped archive too.
Because in an other thread I read that paint.NET must _not_ be installed within the installer.
So it would be good if there is an offical download location of such archives.
It would be much more secure to _not_ patch/fix the TrustedInstaller.
I also read the sticky Topic
But the executables are completly diffrent in size. Looks strange...
My executable is ~200kb and the execs in that archive are ~40kb.
So I asume that this execs belongs to Windows Vista or Windows Vista SP1,
The readme doesn't tell anything about the affected Windows Version
Anyway. This fix looks strange and I think it is very strange to replace the
Trusted Installer if the Trusted Installer refuse an installation.
The Readme describes to take the ownership of the whole
"servicing" subdirectory. Why?
I thnk that isn't very recommend and make it not easy to restore the original
righst and behavior of windows.
It should be enough to replace "only" the ownership and perhaps rights of
the TrusteInstaller.exe, shouldn't it?
The readme in that fix says in 5. to search the TrustedInstaller in services.
But in (my) Windows 7 there is _no_ such search box and I can't find
such a service (only TPM). Is TPM the service?
What is the DisplayName of the TrustedInstaller Service?
